Book Description

March 20 2006 1894898435 978-1894898430

A passion for gardening

First released in 1982, Gardening Under the Arch has long been hailed as the gardening bible for the challenging chinook region of southwestern Alberta. Now, for the first time since its original publication, this hugely successful book has been revised and updated into a full-colour edition by some of its original contributors and a new group of gardeners.

This unique book is truly a work of the heart. Hardly slick, not at all highbrow, Gardening Under the Arch is full of practical, homespun know-how based on the collective wisdom gleaned over years by determined gardeners in the chinook zone. There is knowledge here that can't be found in other books, and there is loads of passion for the love of gardening and all the special moments it brings. Gardening Under the Arch provides insight and inspiration, from the first sunny day in spring when you dig your beds to that cold winter's day when you enjoy a freshly baked pie made with the fruit you have grown.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent gardening advice for Calgary area Aug. 28 2010
My daughter moved to Calgary and is trying her hand at gardening, which is very different than in Ontario. I bought her a copy of Gardening Under the Arch to help her understand her unique climate area. It is filled with all sorts of information specific to western Alberta... from Chinooks, contending with hail, extending your growing season, plants hardy enough to flourish, and much more. I would encourage anyone from this particular region, who could use some gardening encouragement and guidance to buy this book.
